Letter from the Gov to the state legislature. Take the first letter from each line and you get a less-then friendly message to the assembly. His office calls it a coincidence. You judge:

(I'd post the message itself, but the spacing screws up the "coincidence")

Screw you, Robert Langdon, we got Arnie.

Excellent!

Of course if you say it in your best Arnie voice it becomes plainly obvious that this was no coincidence.

As for Arnie voices, I went with more of a Commando or Predator emotional Arnie than the Terminator. He did have amazing range as an actor, no?

You can call your friends and enemies alike and talk to them just like Arnie:

at times Arnie's acting rivals even the inimitable Chuck Norris (not Segal though - that dude is in a class all by himself)



(great letter - i really hope it was NOT coincidence)

A few favorite "How Tough is Chuck Norris?"

When Steven Seagal kills a ninja, he only takes its hide. When Chuck Norris kills a ninja, he uses every part.

All roads lead to Chuck Norris. And by the transitive property, a roundhouse kick to the face.

Chuck Norris can do a roundhouse kick faster than the speed of light. This means that if you turn on a light switch, you will be dead before the lightbulb turns on.

When Chuck Norris goes to out to eat, he orders a whole chicken, but he only eats its soul.

There is no chin under Chuck Norris' Beard. There is only another fist.

Hellen Keller's favorite color is Chuck Norris.

Nothing can escape the gravity of a black hole, except for Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris eats black holes. They taste like chicken.

Chuck Norris grinds his coffee with his teeth and boils the water with his own rage.

Chuck Norris uses a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but because the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because Chuck Norris only recognizes the Element of Surprise.

Chuck Norris can kick through all 6 degrees of separation, hitting anyone, anywhere, in the face, at any time.

If you type "Find Chuck Norris" and click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" in google it pops up.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.
As you know, back at the beginning of October I had my fourth hip surgery. During the operation they discovered a bacterial infection. So since October 6th, I have been on IV anti-biotics (Vancomycin) and have generally felt like shit. I have to take 1250mg, three times per day. This treatment will continue until November 17 and hopefully it will do the trick. I go back to see the "Infectious Disease Specialist" (doesn't that sound scary) on November 17 and will know more then.

Sometimes life really sucks you know?

Was it MRSA? My friend who has MRSA made the mistake of going to Costa Rica and getting dental implants a few months ago. The dentist put a hole in her sinus cavity, and she ended up coming back with meningitis and now has an abscess on her spinal column. She has been getting vancomycin infusions and was getting metronidazole in the hospital.

It wasn't MRSA, but I do not recall the exact bacteria the doctor said it was and right now I don't feel like digging through all that paperwork to find the name.
The doctor did not have any indication where I may have picked this up - it could have even come with the original hip prosthetic that I got back it 2007.
The vancomycin infusions are a pain in the ass and they make me feel shitty, but if that is what kills the infection...

The alternative is NOT an option.

that is one rough ride you have been on with those hips. definitely sending some positive energy your way to help rid that infection - that whole thing is REALLY unfair, no doubt at all. stay positive brother - lots of energy in this forum to help you get through this.

Skies: ultimately it is a personal decision. In my case the decision was made for me since both hips deteriorated to the point of collapse. If you decide to go the surgery route, please be confident that your doctor is giving you the best advice available. Maybe get a second opinion prior to surgery (it made me more at ease). Also, follow all the doctor's instructions and be patient - it is a long and trying recovery. GOOD LUCK.

I truely believe in the power of positive thinking and it has been tough to be positive lately.

At least this collection of old farts keeps me entertained each day.

On the other hand, it is good seeing you become a regular participant in these parts. It has inspired me to do the same. Sweet revenge. You only have yourself to blame.

I think it is just cause Chuck is not Scottish that Rob feels he has to comment.

I can't help but laugh even when reading the oldest most well known Chuck facts.

But I also listen to my music extremely loud - and we know what that means.

Nothing to do with being or not being Scottish - they just didn't strike me as funny and as the resident grumpy old bastard I felt obliged to say so. Don't let that detract from your own amusement.

That is all.

It's good to see you back in circulation too, the place felt strangely incomplete without you. Let the forum beware.
